"Bore" (...trephined)

........thought it was still in progress...don't want to leave meaty section of tendril snubbed like that but may not connect to existing ....like the way it aerates this way.....not intended to precisely imitate ideal Greek proportions...in fact usually avoid that...the usual resulting twists are intentional ...This was pretty spontaneous and if I had to do it again I would not have the two cylindrical objects on same angle as axis of skull core....probably couldn't line them up like that if I had wanted to ;-}...that was not intentional and I do not like it (Sam-I-Am.)

I think in a ceratin way this is great ...

the two cylindrical object mentioned imho are responsible for a rather strict diagonal feeling, too strict for me. maybe putting sth small and obtuse into the upper right corner might loosen the geometry a bit.

keep on

Very strange but I like it. You have a real talent here. Keep them coming and I will keep looking.

AWESOME! In particular I like the broken hourglass. Is this your face? The same face seems to be being repeated throughout this digital series of yours.

I could see you being a great album cover artist.

Thank you people.


Yeah, that was weird the way they lined up like that. That was not something I saw coming. I am a big fan of the organic designs that occur in nature in a slow evolving way such as cracks eminating from rusty manhole lids that fill with grit and moss, or even if it is the shape of a city viewed from way up high....it's the kind of design that does not plunge forward with the whole in mind if you know where I'm at? You can see evidence of growth blocked by obstacles and moving around them. I lik e to doodle this way sometimes, then when I step back from it it has a natural feel to it albeit one that is not cliche or obvious to read. Well, this one didn't work out that way at all....I sort of envisioned this being like a bell with the shell swinging one way and the hammer the other all playful and stuff, but not moving in a singular direction. My lack of attention to the whole this time ended me up with the parallel units.....which bites...

but...I like the way the upper corner breathes good, and we'll seee what happens. Thanks for the good eye.



No, this is not my face. I do however display a high forehead and had I not taken my hair from 12" to 1/8" a couple years ago I may be sporting the sort of Larry Fine (Three Stooges) tuft of hair that this drawing seems to exhibit now that I look at it this way.........gee, thanks alot!

This is too much of the intellect, but it is of an intellect that understands the technology or chemistry of "WOW" - even admires it and keeps buzzing around it.

Fascinated by nature but not part of it (huh?). How can you not be part of nature? - well if you try hard you can *think* you are in control...

Natch, I like this a ton. This is a style that I dearly love to look at, but could never for the life of me emulate. Kudos!

hrm, for some reason I keep thinking "Clockwork Orange" and I have no idea why.

Bri~ have I mentioned I love your work? Even done on a pooter, this and the other pieces are awesome.


05-23-2001, 02:03 PM

Thanks and no, I've never looked into that but will. I am less interested in pattern than the nuances of natural friction all of the variables that send things off balance or that struggle to regain it.



...more at---liberating the intellect which is often responsible for the stagnation of that wonderful thing that we can't "put our finger on".
It's all part of nature...why would anyone want to separate from it.
Some control is important. Most control is a temporary and minor detail. In art, total control is rape or masturbation.

Yeah, the glassies are free but looks like it's been into the ultraviolence. Time for some Miloko and Ludwig Van......

Really liking them, no critique, just liking them.

As usual, excellent work, Bri. There doesnt seem to be a medium you can't master from the getgo.

Don't know if you'll like this, but I say it in a good way... this instantly reminded me of one of the demons (cenobites?) from the second Clive Barker "Hellraiser: Hellbound" movie. It's a film that gets trashed by the critics and is certainly not easy to watch, but I always thought its visuals were stunning.

...I am a big fan of the organic designs that occur in nature in a slow evolving way...

Have you checked out any fractal images? Not just the computer generated ones (which can lean towards cheesy pseudo-psychadelia). I had a book that compared computer-generated fractals with those patterns that naturally occur... microscopic crystals, leaf whorls, trees branches, the delta of a river, frost on a window, and on & on. Fascinating stuff, to see how nature employs it from a micro level to a macro level.

This has the power to confriculate.

I am transfixated on it.

I am speechless!
(for anyone who knows me, this is quite an acheivement!) http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

It took me a good 15 min. to figure out how I feel about this one. I must admit that the composition (everything on the same angle) is disturbing me too. Thank you for explaining the bell movement you were looking for, it clarifies things a whole lot.

I looked at it and the empty eyes kind'a gave me the chills. Then the flower intrigued me. The hourglass simply took my breath away. Freedom, death or insanity...or maybe the freedom of insanity...

Anyway, I have a feeling this will stay with me for a while.

I really do like it, I'm just quite sure I would be able to live with it on my wall.

Disturbing art is Culture with a big "C", It forces people to think. This work is fertile. Thanks for posting.

this has to stick with me!

"Bob CONFRICULATE is not in my dictionary, could you elaborate, please!"

I wanted to say something - I just felt like it was so good it deserved a new word - it's the only thing that came to mind. It sounded right?

Aurora, you caught me a bit off guard with "pooter" http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/redface.gif....that word is half way between several things....tank ye

I've been doodling my yarbles off!
egg temperas on the way, but other deadlines first....must take slides NOW and it's been cloudy for days....I am doing so much better...now I do all my work at the tenth hour instead of the eleventh!!!



My thanxometer is reading sinceriosis! ...you are getting sleepy



I am running at full speed from most of my old work. Thankfully there are always bureaus and desks that are wobbly and need shimmed! =-) I'm all about dirt, stone and steel now.



"freedom of insanity" is flirting with it.......not to say insanity is good or cool 'cause it isn't. Not meaning to disturb, but fertile is nice...thanks...food for thought is not always digested well and sometimes fertile soil is where pigs wallow...it's a bit illustrative for the direction I am heading with this stuff, but there it is...it has been with me for a while and is one of several (most prints as in etchings) pieces I've done in the last year loosely based on the practice of trephination...perhaps when I get quality prints of this stuff you'd want to know. I am planning to do this in as organized way as possible.
